    I totally agree with what you said, but remember this is rock and metal. The main listeners are men and most men are attracted to women. So when you say, "Why when is it when theirs a band using the frontman's good looks to get popular, no one cares. But when it's a chick everyone is pissed" It's because most guys aren't attracted to the male singer, so they don't G.A.F. But most of us are attracted to females and everyone on both sides of the fence(Side 1=people not in the band. Side 2=Band using female as a way to attract attention) knows that, and Side 2 uses as it as a way to attract attention. Not all bands with a female/females do this but many do, and in metal/rock musicality is valued over how you look, so people get pissed when this happens.

    I rely solely on my raw sexual magnetism to get by in life.

    Good on this chick!

    I'm pretty sure this band knows how terrible they are so they just use stuff like this as publicity. Bad attention is still attention either way.

    Not sure if I'm seeing the big deal here. She has a slamming body so she's trying to capitalize on it. That doesn't make me want to listen to their music any more or any less.

    Given how image conscious and manipulative many male-led metal bands are I'm kind of surprised that people have their panties in a bunch over this.

    Well those ballons have to be paid for :D Although by judging how ridiculously fake they look, they might have been rather cheap...
    That said, I too don't really see the big deal. Sure, we don't get that kind of stuff with male singers a lot, but then again, most female singers don't do that. And as Joshua said, the main target audience is male. I definitly prefer a good looking half naked women over, lets say, Manowar topless, all oiled up and in ultra-tight leather pants. I agree that their music sucks (can't say the same for In this moment, I rather like them) and that there are lots of better female-fronted/all-female metal bands out there, in every field of metal (Thorr's Hammer and Abnormality come to my mind in the more extreme genres), and this seems like some stupid PR stunt, but who cares?

    Don't really care about this, listened to one Huntress song and it wasn't even that bad.

    My 2 cents...
    The second biggest music market in the World, which is Japan, has an insane number of JPop male bands, because they realized that the (horny?) fanwomen market is more viable than the (horni?) fanmen market.
    When girls go crazy about a man, they became a cow to milk in every possible way.
    While a man that sees a nice woman in a band would just say "I'd bang her" and leave it to that, women become cash cows.
    Also, Take That, Justin Bibier and loads of other stuff.
    Putting someone sexy, be it male or female, doing any kind of entertainment, is not "sexyst" because it goes either way.
    This girl sells herself, and her body and stuff, and she knows it, she's quite smart and built a character that someway works, which is lame but works business wise.

    Said that, I won't refuse a night with her, wouldn't do crazy things to seduce her :lol:, but if she would get naked in front of me, I wouldn't run away. :p

    Guys.

    GUYS.

    She's NOT naked. She's wearing socks. Minds out of the gutter, please.

    That said, I've only heard one song from them, "Eight Of Swords", and I actually think her vocals were pretty cool. However, the guitar playing really came off as piss-weak and uninvolved to my ears. The dude is playing his lead parts with zero pick attack and little to no conviction; he's playing as if he's afraid the guitar will bite if he plays too hard.

    I seem to be the only person who didn't find this sexual in any way. It's just a photo of a naked person throwing up. If it was a man nobody would bat an eyelid. :shrug:

    I'm not sure any of these actually possible. I'm no Huntress fan, but Brink isn't any better than Janus as far as ability.

    She's really trying to channel Leather Leone.
